I believe my 7 yo daughter has bobblehead syndrome. She has a distinct bob along with vision trouble, unexplained weight gain, occasional headaches and irritability. The only problem is that her pediatrician doesn't think there's anything wrong with her and won't give us a consult with a neurologist. I want to try another doctor but my hubby's insurance won't pay for another doctor :mad: and if I have to pay for one it's going to be a Neurologist. Hopefully someone out there can help, hopefully a physician.

  • Ask him for a referral to a pediatric specialist for the following symptoms: vision trouble, unexplained weight gain, occasional headaches and irritability. I agree with you that she needs further tests and if he doesn't comply, tell him he'll be explaining why to a judge if she does have anything...***k...usually you can change primary doctors within a plan so call them up and ask for a new primary care doctor.
